Siem Reap and the Temples of Angkor-Angkor Wat

Ruth says: Now then, we're not really temple people, and especially after China we felt completely templed out, but we thought we really ought to go and visit the most famous temple in the world. My history here is not as good as Bob's but basically Angkor, which was the capital of Cambodia's Ancient Khmer empire has all of these amazing temples which were built between the 9th and 13th centuries. Angkor Wat is the biggest and supposedly most spectacular ( although we both beg to differ). We took literally hundreds of photos, but here are just a few to keep you interested. All of the above are of Angkor Wat. The girls at the top are in typical Cambodian dress all ready for a wedding.
